augie fill in
This was a great show, remember the lead up to St. Stephen very well. Sandy Troy was probably the guy with the nagra. I remember he had one back then. I was still using the nak 550.

Great Christmas Present
My older sister gave my younger sister and I, 4 tickets to this show. I took a girl who I had been chasing and she went with a friend of mine who she was sweet on and we all had a real good time. I, probably more than the rest. .......It was my first show, but it certainly was not my last.
I love reading first hand accounts of shows whilst listening. Utica in '83' has a fun review on best aud as well.
There have to be several hundred stream only shows that folks would gobble up if the price were right. Every year that goes past will lessen people's interest in these recordings and make any "return" on them diminish at the same time.
Low cost cd releases with a portion going to the archives would be the highest and best use at this point imho.....
Check out the board for 6-9-73 too.

"Who's "Clive" & where's my stolen virtual entirity master recording?
Firstly, who is "Clive" that Weir substitutes for "life" Jack Straw? Well, I'll get to that, momentarily. Oh well, besides my only "St. Stephen"! Which not simply because for me it was the only one, but having, like probably most of you, heard many other recorded performances, this one is absolutely unique in part of the instrumental progression in the fact that Garcia plays in the opposite direction in terms of ascending verses descending, unlike every other I can recall. Why and how? Well since, meanwhile even I though I was recording from well in front of the board; I still remember it in color from having been looking at them through, with my elbows each steadily planted on either side of my recorder that I vigorously contend is better than the important to note still not yet been released for another =/< 4 months well known future as a common standard machine Sony D5 and later still, D5M) J.V.C. KD2 with super ANRS noise reduction which alone is far better than Dolby B and at least comparable with but not compatible with Dolby C) despite in being somewhat bigger in size giving it besides the results themselves which obviously are most important, in its use better metering in terms both of sight and control as an analogy but not exactly the same relational difference for example, the differences in readout/control (smooth or the lack there of) between the D6 vs. the D5 metering strapped around my neck, with my microphones strapped one to each side of) my binoculars. Which turned out great! Given that this monumental performance is not only well over 3 hours in total in which I did goof a very tiny bit at the beginning of "They Love Each Other" even if I hadn't there with this 12 song 1st set (one of the three longest I ever) causing therefore as is here a cut in the 1st set. But better still with only one major cut in the 2nd set in "Good Lovin'" if I recall, unlike even this here soundboard recording both in "Fire on the Mountain" and very badly cuts also, in "Playin' in the Band"! But, honestly I can't precisely remember exactly where my cut was? Moreover, I got all the way through with Mathew Kelly on Harmonica etc. to the end again, unlike even this here soundboard which ends all together to go here to another audience recording somewhere in "St. Stephen". Although I did have to use a lesser quality grade (what kind?) of tape for the encore (see below), rather than all before on Maxcell XLSII. Anyway, I do recall I was ~10-20 feet in front of that a guy with the Nagra!
But to answer the above back to the 1st set: Bob Weir is referring to Clive Davis the head of Arista Records with who they had just signed their new contract with for the "Shakedown Street" album. Even though I don't recall the release date of that regarding that he supposedly, having been in attendance here, complained that they didn't play "any new" or was it "many" since that's not true, indeed they did play five tunes from that one. (Now that I think about it the "Terrapin Station" album is also on Arista but yes they did play one from that too so; if the "Skakedown Street" album wasn't yet released then perhaps it is that he was referring to?)
It certainly isn't the only time I've heard Weir say the following in "Mexicali Blues" but not often "Everybody Polka" since the rhythm of that song is in a polka style. Check out the way Jerry really powerfully instrumental especially the final C chord of (as I am at this moment feeling the chills all over not just in my spine as I just listened now as I re-write this) of definitely the greatest version I ever heard "Tennessee Jed". Again absolutely unique, I never elsewhere quite heard him grab that chord like he does here!
This was the the very best ever performance of "Olin Arrageed" with Hamza El-Din. Superior even than any of the ones at Winterland, and even more so than the rather dull performances, much later! And the encore "One More Saturday Night" isn't the best I've ever heard but it still it cooked!
Oh well, I hope who took my recording away from me several years later eventually came to appreciate what he had obtained, but I have strong doubts of that and suspect it may have been erased or trashed, boo-hoo! Regardless, of what was my great fortune for a while that turned rotten, I can assure you that this is highly recommended!
